Synopsis
Move over, Gidget -- a new breed of female surfers with style, guts and attitude hit the screen in this feature, which combines romance with a sports drama. Anne Marie (Kate Bosworth) is a young woman living in Hawaii who has been surfing since she was a little girl, and over the past year has been training for the prestigious Pipe Masters surfing competition. But Anne Marie is still dealing with emotional baggage that's holding her back -- her mother abandoned her years ago, leaving her to raise her younger sister Penny (Mika Boorem) while having to guide herself through adolescence, and Anne Marie nearly drowned while trying to surf the famous Maui Pipeline three years ago, and has yet to shake the anxieties of this traumatic event. Anne Marie and Penny share a house with Anne Marie's friends Lena (Sanoe Lake) and Eden (Michelle Rodriguez), both fellow surf enthusiasts, and the three friends work as maids at a hotel, a job which offers them flexible hours for riding the waves. When a pro football team checks into the hotel, Anne Marie meets Matt (Matthew Davis), a promising quarterback who has his eye on her. Anne Marie is just as attracted to Matt as he is to her, but will Anne Marie have to choose between the man of her dreams and the recognition as a surfer she's worked for years to receive? Kate Bosworth, Michelle Rodriguez, and Sanoe Lake did all their own surfing in Blue Crush; Bosworth and Rodriguez went into training to learn the sport before shooting began, while Lake, a native Hawaiian, was already a confirmed surf enthusiast. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

I wish I saw this first. After I saw "Step Into Liquid" I wanted to watch some more surfing so I watched this. It so does not compare. I got antsy during the plot portions of the film. The surfing scenes and the scenes with actual female surfers got my attention, but that was about it. The extras were better than the movie itself. I think I would have liked this film more if I weren't so totally bowled over by "Step Into Liquid" which, by the way, gave more screen time to the same female surfers and they looked like they had way more fun than in this film. However, I realize that it's not fair to compare a movie (which needs a plot, actors, and stuff) with a documentary (which just presents the surfers as they are), but since latter is the impetus for my viewing the former, I think I'm justified in my comparison.

The best surfing photography ever... by larbeck July 21, 2003 - 8:35 PM PDT

"...with David Hennings' gorgeous photography" does not quite capture. Remember the very first time you saw the "Matrix" and that 3D freeze frame scene made your mouth fly open? The photography on some of the surf scenes are like that - including some with a POV from INSIDE THE WAVE. It is a true marvel of cinephotography hidden in this otherwise "B" movie, but a good B movie with sweet characters and a few crude jokes.

These are sensuous films that you don't watch so much as live in. Not just movies with pretty scenery, these are genuine out-of-body experiences. (Suggestions are encouraged)
